What if...?

“Being a princess isn’t all it's cracked up to be.”
Princess Diana

What if…you were the ruler of your very own kingdom?

There would be no yellow brick road in my kingdom; the streets would be paved in pink glitter that would sparkle under the suns rays. Currency would not consist of dollars or cents, but rather rainbow-swirled lollipops of varying sizes. Pristine white ponies with curling pink ribbons in their manes would trot unbridled through the streets. Stacks of fairytales would sit beneath each oversized cherry blossom tree, awaiting the arrival of a reader looking to lose themselves in another world. Wink’s Andrea Dress would be my uniform of choice. Come nightfall, everyone within the kingdom would fall asleep under ribbon-trimmed canopies, amidst whispers and the subtle twinkle of fireflies lighting up the night sky.

What would your kingdom be like, kitty cats? How would it look? What types of creatures would one find there? What would your daily attire be? I promise I won’t tell a soul!


Fashionably yours!

COCAMIA said...

My kingdom would be pure joy and happiness! No pain, no disease, no war...
Lots of delicious food to eat without any weight gain...
Not as good as your magical world but I do wish for a Kingdom of no worries ever...xo

Leah said...

I know my answer... my kingdom would be fully air-conditioned... even the streets and every breathing space there is. The cars will not emit smoke, air pollution is a thing of the past. No flooded streets and no traffic jams. My people will all be equal... no rich or poor. Everybody will be dressed in Victorian-inspired outfits, including me. But of course, I am the only one who can wear a crown.

And everybody is smiling... no sad and angry faces are allowed in my kingdom.

Happy Sunday Erika! xoxo

Francy said...

I always wanted to be a princess from Candyland or something. But I would wear pink all day. It seems like SUCH the life!

Jessica said...

omgosh yours sounds awesome! Isn't it great to dream in fairy tales? I quite often feel like Amy Adams in Enchanted haha.

And I've missed you so much too darling!! And you must tell me what you think the second you finish The Host. Seriously I read the last sentence and was already ready to reread the book!

CC said...

Wow, my very own kingdom. Hmm.
Think Saks/Harrods meets Wonka's factory. *sigh*
Fab post as always, E! :)

daisychain said...

Well, now there is a question and a half...

Anika said...

I would forget social norms in terms of dress. I'd wear whatever I wanted, and then some.

And lets not forget that they'd be no war or 3rd world poverty.

And of course, free cupcakes for everyone.

p.s. check out my blog...I'm doing a lil giveaway...

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

It sounds like a magical land dear! That Wink dress is indeed fit for a princess!

Krysten @ After 'I Do' said...

That's so fun to think about... I miss being little and playing make believe.

monica said...

ooooh this is fun!

There would be starbucks and cafes everywhere, restaurants would litter the streets and fresh fruits and flowers would be at every corner

certain clothing apparels would be banned and happy hour would be made into happy days

AH said...

J. said...

I'd rule a deep forest, have a crown of fern leaves and feathers, and wake to sun peaking through the branches every morning!

Luna said...

you paint a nice view of a kingdom. i dont know how mine would be. that would take some time to think about but i'm glad you posted it. its fun to think about.

Sara Lynn said...

I love the dress! If it was made in purple, it would be my uniform as well!

Erika your kingdom sounds awesome! I think mine would be a huge forest with tree houses for everyone, painted bright colors and everyone would be dressed bright and colorful all the time. There would be candy growing off trees and bunnies everywhere. lol this was fun! :)

FASHION SNAG said...

I would wear pink dresses all day every day made of silk. All kinds of animals would live around me and with me.

xoxo Sootjeelina <3

Josie said...

My dear, your kingdom sounds positively beautiful. I love the glitter-paved streets. Mine would involve magical desserts that could be eaten all day without the feaster gaining weight, houses built of designer shoes that replace themselves when you take out a pair to wear for the evening, and sunshine much of the time.

ellie said...

oh how pretty. I think I'd atleast have one pajamma day a week, though.

Rick said...

Erika, the kingdom you described sounds like it would certainly be a lot more peaceful and less stressful. Can I go there on vacation? :-)

thanks so much for the well wishes. Had a blast this weekend and I hope you are having one too!

pixelhazard said...

I think I need to come visit you in your kingdom. My kingdom since it's imaginary would just be an improved version. No pot holes on roads, trains would always be on time. Rainbows and sun showers with polkadot the sky. Shooting stars would be missed by fewer people and time would be spent on lush grass staring up at the balmy summer nights sky. I dont know is that more simple or more impossible or just boring

Sarah m said...

If i had my own kingdom i would force Lionel Messi to fall in love with me and be my prince. and then i would buy FC Barcelona and make it our national team

ahah call me selfish
but whateverr :P

great post! :D

Anna Gray said...

My kingdom would be all.....sparkles and bling. A pink sparkling castle, with silver shiny roads and yes.....there would totally be kitty cats. Kitty cats with....pink bow collars and.....their little kitty nails painted in sparkles. Oooh la la.

OceanDreams said...

I would want my kingdom to be very girlie, with lots of pink, gummy bears, and pretty dresses! oh wouldn't this be nice!

Zanah said...

Emily said...

MT Days & Nights said...

a girl can dream!

Vampires and Tofu said...

Books and libraries and time for reading fabulous stories...weeping willow trees by tranquil waters, stars and fireflies sharing the common goal of lighting the night sky with magic, candles and incense and soft breezes, white flowy gowns that would make Galadriel swoon with envy...paper lanterns hung from trees down a forest path...

sexylegsandbody said...

Haha.... you make it sound so peaceful, great kingdom! Mine?
Just peace and quiet.... no wars, no hate, just love and pure bliss. :-)

Rachel Scarlet said...

You got me into that kingdom you described. We can have one for one of our birthday theme or parties :P
love the andrea dress!

Join the Gossip said...

Um, my kingdom would be a knockoff of yours becuase yours sounds AH-mazing! =)

I am hosting a spring exchance, head over to my blog to check it out!

Aury said...

In my kingdom,

I would be dressed in beautiful long, grecian inspired empire waist dresses and would have a huge beautiful castle with gorgeous gardens that children of kingdom will play in and everyone will be happy and free to follow their dreams and explore the kingdom because it will also be completely safe.

Meg said...

Oh my gosh, I want to live in your kingdom!

Claire Kiefer said...

There would be champagne, sequins, the most beautiful music in the world, everyone I love, and plenty of parking. ;)

Amazing dress! (the Andrea dress) . . . definitely pink princessy heavenly.

Sarah @ Pandora's Box said...

My kingdom would include a castle with endless closets ;)

Little Bear Stories said...

your kingdom sounds pretty lovely, i'd happily live there! x

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Pink. Lots of pink. Sparkles. Cupcakes (but no weight gain). Hot guys everywhere (just because).

I need to find this magical kingdom asap...

I hope you had a fab weekend! xoxo

Sherin said...

I would love to live in your kingdom. It sounds so perfect. I would love to have sparkles and glitter everywhere.

// krissy ♥ said...

That's a very beautiful description! I wish I can visit your kingdom someday :)

Miss Caitlin S. said...

Gosh, yours sounds perfect (and a little like Candyland- gotta say. wink wink). I just imagine a lot of animals around me and autumn leaves with summer sky- that sounds like heaven!

Haute World said...

I love the sound of your kingdom! I never thought about it, but all I can say for now is that my kingdom would involve a lot of pretty shoes and cupcakes ;-)

That Diana quote is so sad though (but unfortunately true). I just wish she could have had a real fairytale princess life like she deserved.

Cat said...

Imagining myself having a kingdom...I can hardly get over my excitement! What am I going to wear?!?!? :)

gleenn said...

If I live in a kingdom I would prefer to be that lady living far up in the hill, writing a book in front of the fire, with a dog and cats, while my hubby's taking photos of me. But I hate to bow on rulers, so I think I have to hide when they;re passing by. :)

Christina Lee said...

Like the inside of my favorite bookstore-- coffee and books all day long!!!!

Maddy said...

In my kingdom we would talk in song, like a musical! Lol! And everything would have a soundtrack and a laugh track when funny things happen (like a sitcom) ;o)

Sara Bentley said...

My own kingdom...? It would probably look like the most comprehensive handbag closet in the world! Every single handbag worth it's weight would be in there -- from Chanel's, Louis Vuitton and Hermes to Fendi and Ralph Lauren's. Yep, I like this dream :)

SogniSorrisi said...

What a cool thing to dream about...love the picture.

caroline @ patagonia gifts said...

love your kingdom, darling! a neverending closet of gorgeous shoes and handbags would be a nice place to live in. have a beautiful monday! xo

The Pink Tutu said...

Your kingdom sounds like my kind of place! Pink glitter streets!? So fab!!

Ashley said...

I *love* the Wink Andrea dress! I think I'd want to wear giant ball gowns every day, with layers of tulle, and of course a tiara! And free Nutella for everyone! LoL!

Jackie said...

I want to live in your kingdom! It sounds so delightful!

My kingdom...well, flowers would be blooming all year round, and the air would be filled with the flower's scents. And there would be farmers' markets all year round too. Even in the north during the cold, chilly months. There would be a kitten for every household, and they'd be coddled and cuddled and craddled; and they could be outside cats if they wanted because they won't have to worry about fleas or vicious dogs that would chase them up and down streets or cars (because there would be several "cat crosswalks" all about town). In every city there would be castles. But these castles are only used for libraries, and maybe in the basement of the library people could purchase a cappucino or maybe a smoothie.
AND! We'd still get milk delivered to us in bottles every morning. And because the milkman is so nice, he'd give each household a small batch of cookies with their milk on Monday mornings.
=D

Sarah from 20somethingcupcakes said...

My kingdom would look something like this.

http://www.20somethingcupcakes.com/2010/04/moroccan-palace/

And one of the pools might be filled with champagne. Just sayin'.

Meream said...

Oh! My answer is in a real journal somewhere. I used to write stories of being a princess and having my own kingdom. Haha. So embarrassing.

Vanessa said...

It would be a place of happiness and filled with all the people I love and adore. I'm pretty sure it would live like a musical, busting out is dance and song. Love it!

Samantha said...

Oh, you should never have asked!

I've had a story.. since I was little, about being queen (thus my URL - as we once discussed).. And I wasn't a *good* queen in my dreams. Not that if given the chance in real life I would be bad.. but once in a while one does dream of being the bad guy in your imagination.

Of course, you never feel good about the thoughts, and you're always alone because evil people don't have a heart for love and are too "tough" to be swept off their feet.
